Debit Card Theft Suspect at Target in Heath.
Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in a debit card being stolen in Newark and then used to purchase items at a Heath store. The Newark Division of Police reports on the morning of July 10, a female suspect stole a wallet from a worker at Susie's Shoppe located at 17 W. Main St., and then used the debit card in the wallet, to purchase items at Target in Heath later that day. 
A Target store surveillance camera took a photo of the suspect, who's described as a black female, wearing a white tank top, dark colored pants, and a white ball cap. 
Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call the Licking County Crime Stoppers at 740-349-6888 or 1-888-488-9058. A special coding system protects the identity of the caller but allows for the reward to be issued at a later time.    

Crime Stoppers also takes calls from persons with information about any felony. Information leading to the arrest and indictment of a felony suspect could qualify the caller for a reward as determined by the Crime Stoppers’ Board. Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization. Reward money comes from private individuals, businesses, and foundations that see Crime Stoppers as an integral tool in the community’s fight against crime. Tax-deductible donations can be sent to: Licking County Crime Stoppers, Inc., P.O. Box 304, Newark, OH 43058-0304.
